9:30 PM SUNDAY: ESPN quotes a New England Patriots player that QB and MVP Tom Brady is lost for the rest of the season.

I’m not a New England Patriots fan. They’re so good they don’t need to cheat, but they cheat anyway. Tom Brady is a phenomenal player, arguably the best QB in the NFL.
Brady screamed as he was hit low by Kansas City’s Bernard Pollard in today’s game against the Chiefs. As I write, Brady is probably done. New England is already scrambling to decide who replaces their ace.
The argument Monday across the sports nation will be whether Pollard’s hit on Brady was clean or not.
Randy Moss, one of Brady’s key targets says it was dirty. Pollard, of course, defends himself.
I saw the replay, and while intent is impossible to prove, Pollard went low, right for the knee. If I had to voice an opinion one way or the other, I'd say it was dirty. No penalty was called, but even if it had been, that’s 15 yards. New England now gets penalized 15 games.
Vince Lombardi once bemoaned, “The knee, the knee. Why is it always the knee?”
New England didn’t just lose today, the entire NFL lost.
Brady’s injury changes the complexion of the entire season. Suddenly in the AFC, San Diego, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville all pick up ground. So do teams in the AFC East, including the Brett Favre-led New York Jets.
The Jets have their home opener next Sunday against guess who?
My, my, my.
